Kyochon Check

2010_04_kyochon.jpgAfter receiving early negative feedback, the new $2 million branch of fried chicken chain Kyochon closed for a retooling. Is it better now? The Voice's Robert Sietsema: "The biggest shock, though, is the tiny size of the birds...The prices remain high, almost unbelievably so...the chain intends to position their chicken as a value-added cult item, the value added being some really glamorous (or weird, depending on your point of view) real estate, and a product that is unremittingly excellent, in execution if not in conception."
